@Denny Jump Photo: Ha ha... we all make them, good sir. Thanks for the kind words and visits to my "redux" on Am3. I'll not say much about your incoming Prez, other than to admit great concern and to wish you ALL the best possible outcome. Life is good, Denny. I live in Toronto and also in a beautiful small town out in farmland, so the best of both worlds. Great to be back in touch again.
